Let’s have (virtual) brunch and support people living with or beyond bowel cancer and their families.
Staying connected and feeling supported is more important now than ever. So make a cuppa, cut yourself a slice of banana bread or rustle up some avo on toast, and have a chat online with your friends, family and colleagues through Facetime, WhatsApp, Skype, Messenger, Zoom or House Party.
Donate the cost of your weekend brunch, morning coffee or afternoon cuppa to Bowel Cancer Australia to ensure we can continue to support people living with bowel cancer during these uncertain times.

Send out your invitations
Invite your family, friends and colleagues to get involved and include details about how they can join your Virtual Brunch.
Send out your invitations via email, SMS or direct message. Set-up an Event using Facebook, create a calendar invitation and post to your social media.
Remember to share your unique fundraising page link and encourage everyone to donate the cost of their weekend brunch, morning coffee or afternoon cuppa. Then wait for the RSVPs to arrive.
Have a chat
Remind your family, friends and colleagues to join your event and make a donation. Be sure to include details on how they can connect with you online (e.g. create a WhatsApp Group or provide the Zoom invitation URL). Then get ready to chat, laugh, enjoy a yummy brunch and connect with each other.
Have a friend who would like the support your event, but is unable to attend? Share your fundraising page URL and ask them to make a donation. Then set-up a time to have a one-on-one chat with them over the phone or via instant message. Staying connected is more important now than ever.
